I read that the garden scene was deleted and it is included in the Blue-Ray release.
It makes sense to have Hydrophonic gardens and also seed banks on the Covenant, as Origae-6 might not have a wide variety of food-producing plants. The Covenant may even contain multiple animal embryos, such as chickens, cows and sheep so the colonists would have an ongoing supply of meat.
Like a real Noah's Ark :) Walter in this scene, as well as the novel, whistles to the plants and Mu/Th/Ur has a funny back and forth with him.

Lawrence of Arabia, That's right, a futuristic Noah's Ark!
The Covenant would have to contain everything that a new Human colony would need or want. That's alot of stuff! The Covenant must have been huge, with multiple warehouses onboard, full of.........stuff!
ship itself may well have been designed to have be stripped apart on landing and its parts designed to be used to help construct homes etc
Ali, that sounds about right seeing as how the full ship would seem impossible to land on origae6 without breaking up. The hydroponic garden looks dope! May have to read that book/s.
